Random Movement supplies us with his promo picks as he digs through his inbox and shares his top choices for week 17.
So I managed to talk the folks here at DNBVault to give me a soapbox to shout about awesome music to all of you. The tunes I’m going to be sharing with you are a snapshot of my favorite tunes I’ve received on promo for that week. The music I’ve selected here will be released within the month, if the songs haven’t been released already. (Hint: google it!) Chances are if I’m writing about a tune in this section, its because it deserves to be spoken about. You aren’t going to read a whole lot of bad reviews here. I don’t like to write about stuff that doesn’t interest me, so if a track is mentioned here, its because I like it and plan on playing it out regularly. To hell with the rating systems too… You’ll know if its a 10 out of 10 or not when you give the tunes a listen.
BCee – Come And Join Us LP – Spearhead Records
Veteran DJ and producer BCee Just dropped this release in my lap, and just by first impressions of looking at the artwork I could tell this was going to be a stellar release. Its a painting of the man himself, a portrait, a representation of all of the struggles and journeys he’s taken thru his life. This album is a culmination of all of those years of effort into what I will go ahead and say is his best release to date. Right out the gate “Firebox” will get your attention with the techy bass and soulful melodies interlaced thru the track. “The River Runs Dry” is another one worth noting with BCee enlisting the talented LSB & Rocky Nti to rock the soul out of this one. I really dig this other really creative tune called “Computer Brains”, an interesting mix of what sounds like 50s female acappella vocal snippets, distorted ripping low synth, tibetan bells and whispers. S.P.Y, Philippa Hanna, Frank H Carter III, and Hybrid Minds all make appearances on the release. Clearly this mix of great music is worth picking up. Don’t sleep on this one; you’ll regret it in the end!
Kimyan Law – Daimyo VIP / Lavish / Chai – Blu Mar Ten Music
Kinyan Law returns to remind you he’s a badass. On the heels of his last big release with Blu Mar Ten Music, this one takes us on another envelope-pushing boundary-eliminating journey. “Daimo VIP”‘s minimal half-timey feel with crazy off-beat rhythms and moody strings make me feel like I’m a spy in a Bond film. “Lavish” continues the experiment with a great example of how negative space can really make you appreciate the individual sounds as they come in. The release wraps up with “Chai” which features a bed of eastern instruments playing tag with a tremulous string quartet and a grouping of back-up singers making this chill-as-fuck track smooth as butter. While this may not be a release of dancefloor killers, if you have a deep appreciation for really creative and talented artistry and like the idea of having your mind blown every few minutes or so, this release is for you.
Jinx – Stand Up LP – Ruffneck Ting
Heavy and banging, this LP brings the thump. Heavier than Ron Jeremy’s cock, these tracks will leave mushroom tattoos on your girlfriends forehead for weeks. Jinx brings it with this release, hitting you in the face with “Exclusive Style”, a hard jungle-influenced track with those big booming subs that really set the mood for this heavy hitting release. Jungle Drummer shows up on “Scorpion Style”, a big-beated floor destroyer with big distorted hits and those full-as-fuck drum hits. Regina and Dazee also make appearances on what I believe to be a stage setter for Jinx as an artist. What a heavy release of bangers and boomers. Get it!
